RUSH: Did you hear about the mass shooting in McDonald’s on Saturday? You didn’t, did you? You know why? Because there wasn’t one, and you know why there wasn’t one? Because there was a guy in there with a gun that stopped it. You think I’m making this up? “A brave dad armed with a pistol stopped what could have been a mass shooting Saturday inside an Alabama McDonald’s when he took down a masked gunman who had stormed in and opened fire.
“The unidentified father was leaving the establishment with his sons when a masked man walked into the Birmingham fast-food restaurant and started shooting, WBRC-TV reported. The father returned fire and, during the ensuing shootout, the gunman, the father and one of the man’s teenage sons were struck, according to the station. The gunman, who was not identified, later died of his injuries. The other two injuries were not considered life-threatening.
“Markus Washington, one of the McDonald’s employees, told WBRC-TV he was making two quarter-pounders when bullets started to fly. Washington said he ran into the freezer, where he heard about 15 shots fired.” It was all brought to a screeching halt by a customer who legally was carrying a gun! You didn’t hear about this anywhere. Fox News has it on their website. But you didn’t hear about it anywhere.
